The 2014 Academy Awards saw a lot of serious actors on the red carpet. Benedict Cumberbatch was not one of those actors. This is very obvious from the "Sherlock" star photobombing the members of U2.

Why? Does he need a reason? No. No, he does not. Not when the results are this incredible.

Of course, the photo of Cumberbatch and U2 hit Twitter with an explosive force.

Did anyone in U2 ever notice what was happening? Those guys do tend to be serious, but who could resist the joy on Cumberbatch's face?

Of course, something this silly has to become a meme. Within hours of the photo coming into existence, Tumblr had thrown Cumberbatch into Ellen DeGeneres' selfie, the Red Wedding on "Game of Thrones," the fight scene in "The Avengers" and more.
